Walking distance to almost everywhere you might want to go and close to streetcar line to get to other locations. Hotel exceeded my expectations. Only negative for us was that there was not coffee in room, had to go to the lobby.

The conference I was attending was at the Sheraton across the street, but the Pelham had much more character for much less money. The room was beautiful with high ceilings and nice old built-ins, and the staff were courteous and helpful. It might have been nice to have a coffee machine in the room, and windows that opened. But the...

I wanted to feel like I was in New Orleans even when I was in my room. The Pelham does that. High ceilings, brick walls, tall windows. They don't have a lounge or restaurant but the Ruby Slipper right outside is great for breakfast. Great location, close to casino, French Quarter, etc.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at The Pelham. It is a heritage hotel but has been restored and is well maintained. Rooms are spacious and clean. I think the best part of the hotel is the friendly staff. They were incredibly helpful and even though the lobby would be busy with people waiting to check in or out...

Friendly staff, very accommodating. Clean well kept hotel, hallways very well maintained. Great location, walking distance to Harrahs just a few blocks away. Many sports bars in walking distance also. Only bad thing I have to say is building across from hotel allowed to keep TRASH barrels at all times right in view of front door of hotel, quite an...

We loved the location of the hotel..it is one block off Canal and one block from Harrah's. If you drive and use the valet service, just park on the right side of the street in front of the hotel...that part wasn't clear to us. The staff was very friendly and the hotel was better than expected. We had issues with...

Stayed here for five days while hubby attended a conference in NOLA. Very clean, very quiet hotel. Our room was located right above the Ruby Slipper cafe which was packed every day, and we could not hear a thing from it! Very nice staff, all friendly and helpful. The only gripe would be that we had a king size bed...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
